This game is definitely a gem, especially for kids. The game has fantastic graphics and the difficulty can be toned down to very easy (actually it's pretty easy on the middle difficulty) so anyone can play. I love how they tell the storyline. It stays true to the movies, but not too scary for the kids. The controls work very well, and there are lots of enemies on the screen at once. Each new level has a unique look to it, I love the art style. Great game IMHO.
I agree, this game is AWESOME. My expections were low but I love LOTR's so I thought I would give it a try. Plays more like Zelda. Adventuring, finding items. Having a blast! Aragorn can shoot bows, block with a shield, up slash, down slash, cross slash. Lock on if you press z. C button looks around. Side quests available. Gandalf, played by my roommate, can shoot fireballs , heal, lightening, ground pound. and sword slash. The game follows the story but with Aragorn. Played for 4 hours and I am hooked!
